Scandinavian Rugs - Scandinavia is known for their Rya and Rollakan Scandinavian rugs. Named after a town in southwest Sweden, Rya Swedish rugs date back to the 16th century. At first the rugs were made in solid colors, featuring black, gray, white and yellow but as time passed geometric shapes and floral designs were introduced. Used by nobility as bedding and a display of social standing, Rya Swedish rugs were often displayed as tapestries and exhibited as family heirlooms. Rollakan rugs are distinctive Scandinavian folk weavings that are flat woven tapestry rugs. In recent months we have seen a tremendous increase in the demand for Mid Century Rugs and for vintage rugs from Scandinavia especially. Vintage Scandinavian Rugs work well as transitional pieces by adding an art deco feel and look which goes hand in hand with the current interior design trends.
